Hey, new here.
What security software are you using for Windows Vista 64 bit version? I am interested in anti-spyware/anti-virus ones. I am using windows defender ATM, and tried to run NOD32.. Well, guess what - NOD32 runs, but after vista upgrade download completely messed internet connection, and I had to uninstall it.
Any suggestions ?

I use PC-Cillin Internet Security 2007 with Ultimate 64-bit. It doesn't seem to use as many system resources as other programs do. The only issues I have with it are it constantly warning me when a website tries to install spyware on the computer and their internet servies screen crashes from time to time. These are minor issues and I will probably renew my subscription with them in October.

I am totally unsatisfied with avast... As far as I noticed they update slower than other software thus you get couple more days to get infected when a new wave comes :/

PC-Cillin uses daily updates keeping your computer more secure. Security software for computers can be difficult to find, the best thing to do is to find one that balances security with a low performance cost.

I have no problems using NOD 32 with Visa x86 and 64bit.
Nod 32 just takes some time to learn. Its not user friendly.
I would double check your firewall port and make sure that Internet
Explorer isnít blocked.
